As Good As Advertised: Vaquero by Aaron Watson

Let’s let the cat out of the bag right now, it’s tired of being stuck in this ole sack: Aaron Watson blew me away with this album. Last month we loaded up and made our way to the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo for Xtreme Bulls and Aaron Watson’s performance. After a solid two hours of rodeo action, the tractors entered the arena preparing the dirt for the stage and additional seating to be set up. I couldn’t imagine the show being able to top Xtreme Bulls. There was…

Diamonds are Forever

Sixty years. The diamond anniversary they call it. Not sure if Grandma knew that this year, but she missed her chance at scoring yet another ring with a big ole rock. If you know my grandma, you can picture just about all ten of her fingers sporting at least one ring, but a few may even have a couple stacked. I ought to do a whole post discussing her rings. She has a story for each of them. Not all are worth huge sums of money, but those usually have…

@ the Moment: Start 2016

January! Where have you gone? Before we know it, we’ll be doing the Christmas shopping and working on our 2017 resolutions! Okay, a bit of sarcasm and exaggeration there, but these days sure are flying by. This month has been busy, but the good kind of busy for the most part. Plenty of days and nights spent with family, several days of working cows and music! I’m going to share my latest and greatest playlist that has been streaming through my ear buds most of this month. It’s been far…

Things Tuesday: 06/30/2015

Oh hey, June. Wait. Goodbye? How in the world do these months go by so fast. I’d understand it if I was jet-setting around the world every weekend, but unfortunately that is not the case. I guess splitting my time between work and play is catching up to me. Then again, maybe this is just a side-effect of growing up that I have to just learn to deal with. On to my little list of randomness on this Tuesday. You may have noticed that this is not a Twelve Things…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/12/2015

So two days down, three more to go! Last weekend went by way, way too fast so this week has been a drag thus far. But I am extremely happy to get this done and posted on the right day! Let’s get this started!! ONE TODAY, marks 3 years since I graduated from my beloved university! Seriously, how in the world is it possible to have time feel like it has flown by, yet at the same time, college feels like yesterday. There are so many things I dearly miss about…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/05/2015

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here in San Antonio, it’s not the prettiest of days to celebrate, but I’m sure people will find a way! But to the list: ONE: Since this will be the third week, that something A&M will not only be included on this list, but at the top, I guess it needs to be made into a tradition! But really, this deserves to be at the top because of how amazing and important it is to highlight. For the 39th year, the Corps of Cadets at Texas…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 04/21/2015

For the 2nd week in a row, something A&M will lead this list. Rightfully so, as Aggie Muster Is one of the Aggie traditions I am most proud of. A few times a year, whether it be in church, with my family or just a random moment, I am overwhelmed with emotions for one reason or another, for good and bad alike. But year after year, ever since the first Muster I ever attended in 2009, I can count on being overcome by a sense of pride, comradeship, sorrow, joy…

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

Back in February, I did my first musical-related post in quite sometime. I concluded that post with one of my Spotify playlists called “@ the Moment”. I keep this playlist towards the top of my list of playlists. More often than not, it’s where I throw new songs that I really have been loving, old songs that I hadn’t heard in a long time but need more of in my life and then random ones I stumble across while browsing through Spotify that I can’t imagine my day without! It’s…

Dear Mr. Johnson & Park,

First off, THANK YOU for coming to San Antonio! But really, ever since I left good ole College Station, there has been a void in my life. And that void would be live Texas Country music. Sure, there are some shows, but not near the amount as compared to College Station. It’s really almost a tragedy. A bit of an exaggeration, but live Texas Country, is usually an inexpensive form of entertainment that involves beer and a dance floor. If that’s not a perfect night out, I don’t know what…

REVIEW: Early Morning Shakes ~ Whiskey Myers

A review by yours truly?!? Well yeah. I have decided as of late, that everyone wants to know my opinion on just about everything. Right? Ok probably not but I need to get my butt in gear and work on my writing and get some posts in the books! So be ready for a handful of reviews to hit this page! Today, Whiskey Myers released, what looks like to me, their 3rd album. On iTunes you can find the album for $9.99; however, I found that on Amazon, you can…
